Agnes Bodor is a Seattle based painter who has been painting cats and landscapes in ink and watercolor for years. AG Gallery has been showing her cat paintings over 5 years, and we are pleased to showcase the entire collection AG Gallery currently holds from her. Each painting is playful and uniquely painted so that you can feel not only that her cats are lively, but you can feel the great joy of making art through her work. Many of her cat paintings are made from observation of her own cats that she lives with. As owners of her work say, they are all great pieces to decorate your wall where you see everyday.
AG Gallery is currently working on uploading Bodor’s artwork to its online art gallery/store, meanwhile, please feel free to contact the gallery to inquire images of other work from her not in this newsletter, as well as inquiry for purchasing any cat paintings from Agnes Bodor.

Marcelo Gallegos is a precocious, shapeshifting sorcerer. Gallegos’s works are described as dark rituals which subvert the patriarchy, upset the status quo, and entrap viewers in a phantasmagorical un-reality of the sacred, the profane, and the grotesque.
